Use What You Have
God moves in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform. Provision is the job of the Shepherd. He calls and He equips. In Him obstacles birth miracles. A stumbling block becomes a ladder to His prepared place. Every person has something to offer. There is a purpose to your life; a purpose fore-ordained by the Most High; a place where you can be your best. It may not be where you are at the moment. Your position (present station in life) may be a far-cry from it. Or you may have just entered the vicinity of that pathway charted by the Most High, but far from reaching its zenith. But what I want to communicate in this article is that provision is in the vision.
Meditate on these Scriptures
1 Then Moses answered and said, “But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, ‘The LORD has not appeared to you.’”
2 So the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?”
He said, “A rod.”
3 And He said, “Cast it on the ground.” So he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. Ex4:1-3(NKJV)
David said 25 Once I was young, and now I am old.
Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned
or their children begging for bread.Ps37:25
Ps23 1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the LORD
We are co-worker with God. He uses us to bless the Body of Christ; His minister, called to feed us. let us rise to our responsibilities.
17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account. 18 Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. 19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Phil4:17-19
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.Ps84:11
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble Matt6:33-34

This is a beautiful expression and I agree with you that when hardships come on us we are being trained by God for a special purpose. I do not remember the name of the Pastor, but he said, "When I am weak (going through troubles) I am strongest in faith". This is a beautiful mystery of God that He trains us and provides us in hardships. Thank you Fenny for sharing such a beautiful thought and meditation.
